Thank you for posting this; I am an executive with an extremely demmanding job that requires long hours and it is essential for me to remain on medication to be productive. I am in corporate real estate/investment banking and at a critical point in my pregnancy - not planned but happy about it_ as I am 8 weeks but also only four months into a National Director's position at a new firm. Performance at work will be critical for not only me to maintain my job but more importantly to keep my anxiety and depression at bay - both products of my ADHD. I am currnetlly on Vyvanse and very hesitant to speak with may doctor about my prescription and condition as they will demand I stop all drugs. I had to discontinue Pristiq which has aggravated both my depression and anxiety - in turn my focus has obviously been affected. Any thoughts on alternatives/ways to deal with this with the medical community, particularly in a State like Texas where these prescriptions are INSANELY monitored, would be helpful and so appreciated.View Thread
